Berries ~ @SavorySimple #Photography

No recipe today… just some food photography on a lazy Saturday afternoon.  Berries make a lovely practice subject.  And apparently snow makes a great light reflector!

    I enjoy your site and love your food photography. I was even inspired to ‘create’ some photos of my own food dishes and post them to my FB page. I wish you much success with your web page.

    Stunning! It’s been disgusting weather here since Monday. This is the longest I’ve gone in 2-3+ years! without picking up my camera! Like 5 days. I have so much food I can’t make until I get some sun! I am in love with these berries of yours!

    • https://plus.google.com/u/0/116899699259024089659/posts Jennifer Farley

      Thanks so much, Averie! After weeks of overcast, terrible skies we’ve been having some great sun but the temps have dropped into the 20s. It’s brutal! I hope you can pick up the camera again soon.

    Beautiful food photography. I need to take a day myself to just play around with my camera.

    Gorgeous! It can be difficult to get a good berry shot but these are stunning. And now I’m craving a big ol’ bowl of berries. :)

      Thank you, Stephanie! The lighting helped, it was perfect today :)

    Beautiful shots! And yay for snow, Nature’s Light Reflector :) It’s nice sometimes to just take a break from a full post and mess around with the camera for the sake of it.

      Thanks, Debra. It gets easier the more and more I practice. Studying other photos also really helps. Oddly enough I think Pinterest has been a huge help.

    I like visiting your blog and browsing through all those beautiful clicks. I’m still working on my food styling technique, but what I love about your photography is that, you make the simplest photo carry lot of definition ,depth, and make it look wow. The lighting, the angles, and the dish of course, just perfect!

    BEAUTIFUL pictures! Any tips about photographing berries too???

    I’m craving berries so bad now… I guess it’s a healthy craving at least ;)

    • https://plus.google.com/u/0/116899699259024089659/posts Jennifer Farley

      Thanks, Natalie! For me it’s all about good sunlight and knowing how to use all of my camera settings to tweak images. I used to take 20 photos of every shot on a different setting, hoping to get something good. Now I actually look at the histogram, adjust the exposure and aperture and tweak as needed. It makes a huge difference.

    Gorgeous. What I really want to know is, where did you get the gorgeous berries? Or were they only for photographing?

    • https://plus.google.com/u/0/116899699259024089659/posts Jennifer Farley

      Thanks Laura! I got them from Whole Foods. They’re not the best in flavor this time of year but they’re pretty enough for photos (and they taste good enough once you push them through a juicer).

    Absolutely stunning. I am obsessing over the last one. All I can think is “we have snow here….” :)

      Thanks, Mackenzie! I wish we had some snow. It’s been jumping back and forth between the 20s and 60s here, so weird. I just want one good blizzard before the winter is over.
